Sorry time female dogs.
I have had a love hate relationship with Google.
I hate them for:
- Ill intentions
- Privacy breaches
- Tracking users
- Building products only to kill them later
- Bandwidth throttling
I love them for:
- Amazing UX
- Smooth integration
- Cross device availability
- Bandwidth throttling
Anyway, most of you know that I was planning a short vacation to London in July. I booked aeroplane tickets and my first halt was at Istanbul.
I love networking and meeting new people. I use couchsurfing too alongside other platforms to meet and interact amazing people out there.
I reached out to this girl in Istanbul to meet and if she can show me around. My first message was in English to which she responded that she does not speak English.
I used Google translate to talk to her in Turkish. Everything went so fucking smooth. We finalised to meet.
The way we met in Istanbul can be a story in itself. So if you all are curious, let me know and I shall post it in comments.
Now the real thoughtful part by Google is that people will use their Translate app in foreign land where chances are they will not have internet access. The languages are available offline. Fucking brilliant.
I downloaded Turkish language offline and it worked smoothly. It was great grammatically too.
We met and communicated via Google Translate app which I had offline and had a real great time.
If not for Google, I wouldn't have been able to meet such an amazing person in an unknown territory.
No doubt the company is doing bad things, but in some ways, they are fucking awesome.8
Any app which can save offline public transit navigation and maps?
I tried G Maps, Moovit and City Mapper. All of them need internet.
Also, how easily can I find internet on a foreign land?24
My office's admin team is bunch of retards.
The season has changed and we are welcoming monsoons.
Temperature has dropped quite a bit now and these donkey fucks are keep cooling as low as 23 degrees Celsius.
We are used to 35 degrees Celsius outside office and the sudden change is causing hell of an issues.
I tried reaching out to person in charge with cooling and they reset the temperatures everyday.
Fuck the flying spaghetti monster, I am shivering like a vibrator.
Not only my hands and legs and ears and brain but even my dick is numb now.17
FUCK ME. JUST FUCK ME.
I AM SO FUCKING PISSED RIGHT NOW.
I WAS PLANNING MY FIRST OVERSEAS VACTION AND ASKED A CUNT FOR SOME HELP.
BITCH TOLD ME THAT I NEED FLIGHT TICKETS FOR VISA. I BOOK TICKETS AND APPLY FOR VISA.
FUCKERS DIDN'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT TICKETS AND THREW THEM ON MY FACE.
VISA WAS DELAYED AND HAD TO CANCEL MY TICKETS.
I FACED A LOSS OF SOME 115 USD.
I TRIED TO CLAIM IT UNDER TRAVEL INSURANCE. SHIT FUCKS HAD 100 USD DEDUCTIBLE.
FUCKERS JUST PAID ME 15 USD WHICH WAS BASICALLY THE INSURANCE PREMIUM I HAD PAID. SO TECHNICALLY I GOT NOTHING.
NOW LATER WHEN AS I REBOOKING THE TICKETS FOR NEW DATES, I GET A GOOD DEAL.
BEING A LAZY PIECE OF TURD, I DECIDE TO BOOK LATER.
FEW DAYS LATER, KABOOM!!!! NO DEAL IS AVAILABLE.
A DAY LATER THE DEAL IS AVAILABLE. I SAID WILL BOOK ONE WEEK BEFORE THE DATES. YEAH!!! I AM A LOSER CUNT.
DEAL MISSING AGAIN THE NEXT DAY. FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!
I HAVE TO BOOK THE TICKETS INDIVIDUALLY. I WAIT FOR A FEW MORE DAYS. THE PRICES ARE RISING EACH DAY.
INCOGNITO OR COUPONS OR SKYSCANNER. NO SHIT WORKS.
I FINALLY DECIDED TO BOOK THE TICKETS. IT COSTED ME 130 USD MORE THAN THE ORIGINAL DEAL.
SO OVERALL, DUE TO LACK OF PLANNING AND LAZINESS, I ENDED UP WASTING 230 USD FOR NO GODDAMN MONSTER DICK SUCKING REASON.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT MORE SUCH WASTE OF MONEY AWAITS ME DURING THE ENTIRE TRIP.
MY MOOD IS RUINED ALREADY BECAUSE THE PLANNING AND EVERYTHING IS STRESSING ME OUT AND INSTEAD OF EXCITEMENT, I AM ANXIOUS.
FUCK SHIT EATING DONKEY FUCKING TOUTS.33
Another Google rant:
I am starting to hate this company as much as I hate Facebook.
Unskippable and repetitive ads of same brand bombarded on every god damn video.
Not only this is making me hate the brand, I am starting to hate Google for this now.24
Another Google rant:
Why the fuck am I shoved this cancerous apps in my face by Google?
I have reported them and show 'not interested' countless time and yet being prompted to install the crap in my phone again and again.21
Fucking bugs everywhere. Normies around me say Google is the best, flawless company.
I can find bugs literally in seconds after hitting on a product.
Shows me a 'Like' button on my own post. Why the fuck would I like my own post?
As stupid as it can be, people actually do and I never understood why.
And when I try to like my own review (because I am fucking cool nibba), it throws a stupid error.
Not even a valid one.
This is SOOOO FUCKING ANNOYING.22
I am lately being active on devRant, LinkedIn and Reddit.
I made some good connections and friends. Never socialised any better.
However, after I installed the dR app again, I ended up wasting my time scrolling more miles and posting more bullshit.
I keep browsing Reddit for stupid memes and LinkedIn for no specific reason.
I recently cultivated a good habit of reading and I mostly read eBooks. That said, I finished 2 books past month and half way through my third book.
I had a plan to complete it over the weekend but *sigh*
So now I have uninstalled the apps and focusing more on learning and reading.
BTW I am not addicted to apps, I am addicted to people I meet there. You fuckers are awesome.8
Any devRanter from Istanbul, Turkey?
I am on my way to collect my passport from UK embassy and I am sure I got the visa approved.
So now my new airline tickets will give me a 20 hour layover at Istanbul.
Not only I am excited to explore the city, but I am more excited to meet my fellow ranters there. Let me know what works.16
Mozilla Executive uses Amazon Alexa.
And they say, they care about the browser respects user privacy. LMAO
Someone please notify Google that we are past half the year. Smh!
What pisses me off is the fact that they rarely provide any relevant release notes and often don't provide at all.
Just because it's their platform, they do whatever they wish to. I hate this attitude.10
Monsoons hit the city. Let me welcome my seasonal anxiety and sadness.
Unless it is pouring at night, the light or drizzling rains make me sad.
And in other news, I overhead a friend saying my crush got married yesterday.
I'll be back, there's some dust in my eye.8
So here's the deal on how I WILL sort my life and fix the leaks:
1. Get into the new PM position as early as possible.
No matter what it takes. I will have to stay low key.
2. Meanwhile learn all the shit of and around Product Management.
Includes reading books, learning tools, methodologies, communicating and interacting with fellow PMs, courses, reading more articles, blogs and books. JUST FUCKING LEARNNNN.
3. Get a new job as soon as I get the new title on paper. Because I need MONEY for survival.
Also, I want to be in B2C environment instead of B2B.
4. Meanwhile implement the stock market script/algorithm based on the theory I learned. Guys it works and if any of you need it, shoot me a message and I shall share.
5. Invest and earn. Want to have a side income and distribute my investments too.
6. Start with that goddamn side project. Outsource it if required (mostly after I score a better paying gig).
Stop looking for Plan B, Floyd. There is no Plan B. There is only one and we have to stick to it.14
Any devRanter from Cairo, Egypt?
For my London trip, I have a 13 hour layover at Cairo on my way back home.
Planning to see Giza Pyramids. Might catch up with some cool people there.
Coffee never harms (except that caffiene triggers my anxiety, LOL JK).
Let's meet :)6
Anyone into Art and Events?
I am looking for some feedback and help on my project.
I love attending music gigs and not using social media like Facebook, I often miss out a lot. I have to scavenge the internet and dig for good content.
That's when I joined Reddit and it striked me. I started a community/sub Reddit where we list art based events happening around.
This way, we get to share and explore based on community model. Things are going really great and using agile I implemented quite some stuff. However, the limitations of Reddit were not allowing me to address users' needs.
So I decided to create a simple one page web app where anyone can share an event they come across and at the same time find out one shared by others.
I am looking for feedback on idea, design and functionality while at the same time a tech co-founder.

With respect to revenue or monetisation, I am planning Google ads once we have some traffic. This is mostly a hobby project so what are your thoughts on Ad based revenue?
P.S.: Mockups for the new card design are yet to be updated.24
I will be travelling to London this June to meet a friend and unwind a bit.
This will be my first international trip and in fact first aeroplane trip as well.
Those of you belong to the great city or have visited, what tips you have for me?
Which are places I must visit? And being a Pink Floyd fan what are the related spots I must visit like Pink Floyd museum, Battersea Power Station, etc?43
1. 1000 people are standing in line
2. All of them are numbered from 1 to 1000
3. All odds are removed
4. Line moves forward
5. Repeat from step 2 until last person standing
Question: what was the original number/position of the last person standing?
Consider array starting at 1.17
